Vaccinate Children and Prevent NINE Diseases

Nov 29, 2011

1/3 of annual vaccinations complete, 2/3's to go.

We have completed our first round of vaccinations for the year in 30 rural villages in and around the Ouelessebougou area. In January and May the Alliance will complete two more rounds of vaccinations--totalling almost 6,000 vaccinations for the year.

Village families in the rural areas of Ouelessebougou continue to face many health risks and diseases every day. In Mali, one in five children does not live past his or her fifth birthday due to preventable diseases such as dysentery, measles and malaria.

The good news--93% of children under the age of five are fully vaccinated in villages where the Alliance provides vaccinations, whereas nationally the numbers are less than 50%. Thank you for helping us continue to prevent disease for families in 30 rural villages.

Sincerely,
Ouelessebougou Alliance staff
